The South Bank Show: The Damned United

The Damned United is a South Bank Show coming up on ITV1 very soon on the writings of the beautiful game. The film centres round the novel, The Damned United by David Peace, one of the most compelling portraits in British sporting literature.

The novel follows the revered and feared football manager Brian Clough and Melvyn Bragg interviews David Peace at Elland Road, Leeds United’s ground, where the novel’s action takes place.
